NATO at the start of the 21st Century

Jarosław GRYZ

The article deals with the development of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization after the end of the Cold war and its current and future position. Over several last decades, NATO has undergone a radical change from a defence alliance to a defence organisation that is aiming to cover the whole of Europe. While in the Cold War period the cooperation in the areas of defence and security was basically limited to the activities of member countries within the NATO structures, since the beginning of the 1990s, the sphere of the organisation, characterised by its newly defined goals, has been expanding. The changes also occurred in the traditional transatlantic link.
